    Default M15 French Adrian help needed

    Hi All,
    I am looking into picking up this WW1 French Adrian to fill the gap in my helmet collection, so I am calling on all the adrian experts to please let me know what you think about this one, the good the bad or the ugly. Thanks for any help,
    John

    well at least glenn likes it LOL, I think it is a good original example, maybe the liner is replaced? which seems common, I know the drawstring looks new but overall the paint is really good for its age, I may take a punt at it.

    I like the look of it too - if it's a decent price, go for it. A lot of French
    Adrian helmets I've seen are missing most of the paint and don't
    have liners - almost relics.........
    Regards,

    wow chris thats cool stuff, can you post photo's of them here?
    I think I am going to pick this one up, I worked him down to 145US which I feel is fair since the condition is nice.

    Thanks guys, chris you have some truly priceless helmets from your pappy's, I am envious. This helmet will arrive to me soon, I just wanted a nice complete example of a french helmet and the WW2 M26 models all seemed to be different parts or really banged up and hard to find complete enough to my liking, Next on my list is a doughboy.
